Managing Secrets

Each Inngest account environment (Production & Test) has it's own secrets manager. All secrets are encrypted and are passed as environment variables to your functions at runtime.

Adding a new secret

You can access the secrets manager by navigating to the Settings panel from the left navigation then selecting the Secrets Manager tab or clicking this direct link. You can then click "Add a secret" and enter your secret name and value.

Production and Test environments

To toggle between production and test environments, use the "Test mode" toggle on the left navigation. Secrets are isolated to each environment.
